1.0 out of 5 stars Hideous--Very Disappointed..., December 23, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Printed grain cow hide leather money clip with magnet
I rarely write reviews, but when I noticed the price on this money clip had more than tripled, I had to enter a PSA. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS WALLET/MONEY CLIP if you have any concern for quality or plan to give it as a gift. First, the box it came in had a thin clear plastic cover that looked like it was left over from 1982. The gold lettering "Money Clipper Genuine Leather #910E" had rubbed off or smeared in spots on the plastic cover. The plastic cover for the box was badly scratched, especially in the middle, as if it had been smooshed up against another unsold relic for the last 27 years, waiting for some idiot to say, "Oh, that looks like a good deal!" Obviously, this is not suitable for gift giving in its present state.

I had great hopes for this money clip/wallet as previous reviews on Amazon had been fairly glowing. I don't know if those purchasers received a different, or perhaps newer version, or if they were just reviewing based on the <$10 price, but the clip/wallet I received was about as far from "fine leather and hand crafted" as one could get. I'm not even certain it is leather, to be honest, but if it is, it is sub-standard to say the least. The "leather" has a terrible odor and the photo ID window is crooked and poorly stitched. It has (surprise, surprise) some of that ultra cheap plastic in the window area. The entire wallet is poor stitched--or glued. There is no "give" to the credit card slots--they kind of crack a bit when you open them.

The whole thing is just an embarrassment and it is easily the worst thing I have purchased on Amazon. That is saying something as I am a Prime member and shop almost exclusively with Amazon when they have what I need. This item was incredibly disappointing and I hope I can save at least one other shopper from making a similar mistake. Perhaps I got a "bad batch", I don't know. I had planned to add this as a little stocking stuffer Christmas gift, but the quality is just too poor to pass off as even a stocking stuffer, let alone a "real" gift.

Stay away--or plan extra time for a return and shipment of a different item. Best of luck!

I think you received a defective product. I didn't find any of the problems you detailed in mine.
